Who Am I?

Who am I?

I am a friend.

I am a part of a family.


On the simplest level,

I am ME.


Who am I?

I am a high school graduate.

I am a college attendee.


On the most basic level,

I am ME.


I am beginning to learn what makes me, well me.

I am being molded and shaped into someone that belongs to a group. WE.


It only took twenty years to begin to uncover and discover what I am. ME.


I am enrolled in these courses to make me a more well-rounded individual.

But after this past year I am left wondering, have I become a residual?  


Over this past year, my mind is has become more enlightened.

My thoughts are heightened.


I do not want to become a person that distrusts.

I was taught to critically analyze the information before US.


I am becoming more involved and informative.

I am taking what I have learned and being more performative.


It has become my goal to inspire others.

To be better sisters, brothers, husbands, and mothers.


Over the next eighty years, I will continue to be that person I identify with. ME.


So, who am I?

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
